Postponed: Support Staff Conference 2021


The bad news is, we are disappointed that the NSW outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, leading to a lengthy lockdown for Greater Sydney, means we need to postpone our Support Staff Conference that was to be held on 13 August.

But the good news is, our speakers, workshop facilitators and the venue are all happy to lock-in a new date: Friday 13 May 2022. We do hope you can join us then.


We did consider running this year’s event online, but we feel this would not deliver the conference we know you deserve. And perhaps you’d like a break from Zoom.


Our first priority is the health and safety of our members. With the extended lockdown, the likelihood of longer restrictions on travel, caps on numbers in meeting venues and social distancing requirements, we know it is the right decision.


If you have already purchased a ticket, we have organised a refund through Eventbrite.


The IEU’s Support Staff Conference is a great opportunity to network with your counterparts in other schools throughout NSW and the ACT, and to hear about the key issues impacting your professional life and how to respond to them.


We thank you for supporting the IEU. We hope you are staying safe and well, and if have any questions or concerns about what’s happening in your school, please don’t hesitate to contact your Organiser, of call the IEU on 8202 8900.
